As a child, I remember collecting an insane number of cute and quirky pencil eraser toppers. I loved them! Now, I craft more than I collect, so I was thrilled to learn I can actually create my own pencil eraser toppers. Yes, the love of pencil eraser toppers is being passed down to my children and the sky’s the limit for what I can create.
I recently came across Eraser Clay by Sculpey. Yes, the same brand that offers bakeable clay for projects also offers bright and fun colors of oven bake clay to make your own erasers. Yes, they do erase pencil marks, unlike other Sculpey clays. Going the next step to create your own pencil eraser topper is easy. I found an assortment of colors in my local Michael’s and also on Amazon.
There are some simple suggestions for working with this type of clay. Be sure your hands and work area are clean and free of lint, the clay will pick up on any oils or coloring on your hands. Place any unused clay in zip top bag or air tight container so it doesn’t dry out. Be sure to work the clay and warm it up for easier molding.
Create your own pencil eraser top. I created a simple cupcake pencil eraser top for my daughter.
Then find a lonely pencil to top.
I bet once you start playing around with this eraser clay you will fall in love like I have. It is a fun quick project or rainy day craft to do with the kids. Do you enjoy making any other types of crafts?
